About The Imperial I

The typical floor plan for the Imperial Towers has only four residential units within the hexagonal floor plate and above the 40th floor all units are duplex. All units have generous outdoor decks with approximately 150–270 degree views. For privacy the decks are located within the floor plan such that they do not overlook the other apartment units. A landscaped podium on the ninth floor provides a green space amenity for the residents.

The towers’ structure utilizes a flat slab design which gives flexibility to change the interior layouts of the units if desired by the occupants as well as provide a faster construction schedule. The lack of peripheral beams allows for maximum window heights. To express the verticality of the towers, the window glazing is fragmented from floor-to-floor at the lower levels, changing to double-height glazing higher up the elevation, eventually continuing up into the crown.
